Our Approach

At the Green Room, our aim is to create a safe, relaxed and confidential environment where clients can feel at ease to open up and discuss any difficult issues they may be experiencing or concerned about.  

We endeavour to help people develop, grow and feel whole; by overcoming their fears, realising and reaching their life goals, improving their self-esteem, readjusting to life changes and building and maintaining healthy relationships.

Our approach will vary depending on client needs. We do practice CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), which is provened to be highly effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety and related problems.

Consultations with us involves detailed discussion of the issues concerning the client. 
We intervene by:

  • Assessing the emotional, intellectual and behavioural functioning of the client
  • Exploring the thoughts, emotions and behaviour of the client and tracing their origins
  • Helping the client develop effective ways of controlling and coping with these difficulties
  • Helping the client to implement changes that enhance wellbeing and awareness, and alleviate the presenting problems.

Sessions are usually up to one hour in length, but assessment sessions may be longer. The number of sessions required will vary and is negotiated with each client.
